Visit Montana Mountain Biking Trails Across the State


Montana offers unmatched trails and an undiscovered country for mountain bikers of all levels. Many communities even feature bike shops with gear, know-how, and trailheads right around the corner. We curate trail rides depending on your location, skill level, and what you want to see. From panoramic mountaintop views to rides through National Parks, we know where to go. 

Go on a weekend tour, or make a day trip out of it! Once you've finished your ride through some spectacular scenery, we usually recommend a stop in at the local brewery to swap stories with other bikers and travelers. The thrill of mountain biking in Big Sky Country will leave you with plenty of source material and lasting memories.


With 64 mountain ranges, the Continental Divide Trail slicing through the state, and historic mountain passes, Montana has trails pretty much everywhere. From mellow beginner and family-friendly rides to experts-only single-tracks, you’ll find your home as you explore the state.

Don’t ride? Don’t worry! We curate every detail of our trips and can include any sort of activites and options. From fly-fishing and whitewater rafting to hot springs soaking, we’ll keep you all busy.
